"I love the people and places I saw working for DOD. They helped to create the man I am today and to inspire me to better myself and dive headlong into the sciences, for which I am passionate."

Substitute Teacher
in Charlotte, NC

"I work as Substitute Teacher from Jan 2020 to March 2020 (Doors closed due to Pandemic) due to Mortgage Banking does not exist here in Germany. I enjoyed teaching the kids and working for the state is different than working for a company but I enjoyed the experience. I was also the assistant coach to the baseball team but that was also shut down due to Covid 19. I miss working with the Attorney, Brokers, Processors and the Customer to ensure a smooth closing experience."

Sheet Metal Mechanic

"Working for the DoD is not for everyone. As expected, it is very regimented and the path to success is well defined. Daily tasks rarely change and the people within your immediate workspace rarely change dramatically. The benefits are great, but working on military equipment is no easy task. Getting into the aviation field is challenging as most employees and potential hires have active duty service and experience working on particular pieces of equipment. There are numerous opportunities for individuals that are interested in this field, but lack the military experience, though the process is markedly longer. Overall, my time here was mostly enjoyable, but not perfect. I would absolutely return to this employer, but in a position that reflects my newly completed education level."

Cognizant Engineer
in Savage, MD

"I worked for NSA for 29 years. Overall the experience was good, but towards the end, when I had to go out on disability, the experience turned very sour. My management was not sympathetic and tried to force me out on unfavorable terms in my last office. One individual even accused me of using my condition as a crutch. I chose to take that quietly just to get out of there but I could have made a great stink with OPM over that. Anyway, ultimately I did get a good severance package and time to recover, so if you can see past the degrading treatment I guess their benefit package was a good one. And during my healthy years the work and treatment was good, so I guess they're a mixed bag."

Information Security Specialist

"The federal sector is different from the private sector in which you are given more autonomy to in executing your job functions. More often you are not given any specialized training, but required to figure out the job and get it done. As with any job, there are pros and cons. Some environments are conducive of getting the work performed while others can be a challenge."

"As a new employee you are put in a sink or swim position. Coworkers are helpful an do their best to help. Management is very unsupported. the attitude is mission first but staff is expendable. would not recommend working here unless you have a military mindset."
